Safe and Secure
Right-Click eBay Sniping

BidNip Makes Sniping Easy!

In an effort to make your sniping experience the easiest and quickest possible, BidNip now provides you with three different ways to make winning an auction as easy as a single click of the mouse button. In addition to our time-tested right-click menu addition and our javascript "bookmarklet" that you can drag to your Favorites/Bookmarks toolbar, we've also got a Sniping Toolbar!

BidNip Sniper Toolbar

A "toolbar" is an application that installs as an "add-on" to your web browser (Internet Explorer, FireFox, Mozilla, etc.) that makes special features easily available. The BidNip Sniper Toolbar provides powerful functionality at the tip of your fingers. More information on the Sniper Toolbar page.

Adding Bookmark Sniping

Bookmark sniping is the easiest and fastest way to set up your snipe. Whenever you're at eBay.com and ready to snipe an item, just click on the bookmark, and you'll be taken directly to BidNip with the eBay Item Number already entered and ready to go

To Install on Internet Explorer

To install the quick snipe bookmark, just do the following:

  1. Verify that your Links toolbar is visible. If it isn't, you can turn it on by clicking on the menu item: View -> Toolbars -> Links.
  2. Right click on this link: Snipe It! and select Add to Favorites... from the right-click menu
  3. You may get a security alert, you'll need to click "yes" to accept the javascript bookmark.
  4. Select Links in the Create Links section to add it to the Links Toolbar.
  5. Select Okay and your'e ready to use the bookmark!

To Install on FireFox

To install the quick snipe bookmark, just do the following:

  1. Verify that your Bookmarks toolbar is visible. If it isn't, you can turn it on by clicking on the menu item: View -> Toolbars -> Bookmarks Toolbar.
  2. Right click on this link: Snipe It! and select Bookmark This Link... from the right-click menu.

  5. Select Okay and your'e ready to use the bookmark!

Using the Snipe It Bookmark

Now that you've added the Snipe It bookmark to your toolbar, you should see the link near the top of your browser. It will have the text "Snipe It!" next to a white document icon.

Whenever you're at an item on eBay that you want to snipe, you can just click on the Snipe It Bookmark and a new window will open on BidNip with the Item ID entered for you!

Adding BidNip To Your Right-Click Menu In Internet Explorer

Now, any time you're browsing eBay, simply click the right mouse button, and select Snipe It With BidNip.

Right-Click for FireFox Users!

We love Mozilla FireFox users too! We didn't want them to miss out on the extremely handy right-click sniping, so we've written a FireFox Extension that adds sniping to their right-click menu too! Use it just like the Internet Explorer version!. Please choose the correct version, depending on your version of FireFox:

  1. FireFox version 1.x
  2. FireFox version 2.x
  3. FireFox version 3.x

After downloading and installing the extension, you'll need to close all of your browsers and re-start them. After you've downloaded the file, you can drag-and-drop it right into your Firefox browser window to start the install.
